Unlimi-Tech Announces Independent Study Finding FileCatalyst as Most Stable 10 Gbps File Transfer Solution in Presence of Network Impairments
May 2, 2013—Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc., a pioneer in managed file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst, the world's leading accelerated file transfer solution, is pleased to announce findings from a recent independent study disclosing FileCatalyst Direct as the most stable file transfer solution at 10 Gbps speeds. FileCatalyst will also showcase its software platform at the upcoming Interop Expo, taking place in Las Vegas, NV from May 7 to 9.
At booth 2159 Unlimi-Tech will showcase demonstrations of FileCatalyst, its accelerated and managed file transfer software platform, including individual demonstrations of secure and reliable transfers with FileCatalyst Direct, FileCatalyst Workflow, and FileCatalyst Central. Reviewed in the study was FileCatalyst Direct, a point to point accelerated file transfer solution allowing organizations to send files of any size or format at blazing speeds of up to 10 Gbps. The academic study concluded that it was the most stable file transfer solution for transferring files at 10 Gbps in the presence of network impairments, and maintaining a speed of over 9.3 Gbps even with satellite latency and severe packet loss.
The study, conducted by Anhalt University in Germany, compared solutions from Unlimi-Tech and several of its competitors under various conditions to compare commercial fast data transport approaches through 10 Gbps Wide Area Network (WAN) under equal network conditions. FileCatalyst was able to achieve 10 Gbps when sending a single large file, while competing technologies sent multiple, smaller files in parallel to achieve the same speeds. Over international 10 Gbps links, this means FileCatalyst may achieve results more than twice as fast as its closest competitor. With AES encryption FileCatalyst also excels, achieving between 8 - 9 Gbps sending a single file, limited only by CPU resources. Having initially been released in 2011, these results are already being experienced in production by FileCatalyst customers.
"We are very pleased with the results of the independent study, supporting what we already see with our customer's production results," says Chris Bailey, CEO of Unlimi-Tech. "These results go beyond the lab. They are real results seen by our customers on a daily basis. We were the first to market with a 10 Gbps solution, and we continue to improve on the technology."
FileCatalyst will be demonstrating the 10 Gbps technology at the upcoming Interop show in Las Vegas, taking place from May 7 to 9, as well as hosting an open bar reception at booth 2159 during the show, on Wednesday, May 8, beginning at 5:00 pm. “We are excited to have Unlimi-Tech exhibiting its file transfer acceleration technology at Interop Las Vegas this year,” says Jennifer Jessup, Interop GM. “FileCatalyst presents a valuable solution to event attendees looking to quickly and reliably transfer their organization’s files, despite geographical distances and network impairments”.
